Medical professionals perform a free surgery in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

This year Jewish Voice decided to do a back-to-back  medical outreach to both Woliso and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, bringing the Lost Tribes of Israel located in these remote areas free medical, dental, and eye clinics.

The results of what God did during our medical outreach to Addis Ababa were staggering. Praise God with us at the amazing miracles He performed through the JVMI staff and volunteers.

Woliso 2012 Outreach: Five Days of God’s Blessings

Last week turned out to be one of the most fruitful weeks we have ever seen, thanks to the intense prayer from you and so many others.

We treated nearly 1,000 more patients than our Woliso, Ethiopia, outreach last year, including scores of sight restorative surgeries from our eye team. The clinic operated at an extremely efficient level with full dental care (extractions, cleanings, and fillings), eye care (cataract surgeries, eye saving optometry, and glasses dispensed), and medical care (pediatrics, general medicine, and gynecology). Our newest department, the Distribution Center, provided hundreds of men, women, and children with shoes, clothes, blankets, soap, and other necessities.

Our prayer team, lead by Rabbi Jack Zimmerman, did an incredible job sharing the Good News of Yeshua and praying for more than 30% of all patients—an outreach record.

I don’t recall seeing more life saving situations in any other clinic than we did in Woliso. In one such case a young teenage boy came to the clinic very near death. Derinda Walker, a registered nurse and director of our Nursing Station, told us that he would have died within one or two days if he had not come to the clinic. He suffered from a simple tooth infection that spread into his jaw. His entire body was inflamed with the toxins from the infection, leaving him unable to walk on his own. He was unrecognizable from the swelling in his face. We quickly provided him with the necessary life-saving antibiotics and fluids through an IV and rushed him to the nearest hospital for his JVMI-sponsored surgery.

His is just one of many, many cases. Each and every medical outreach reminds us of the significance of the critical work that we continue to do to bring relief to the suffering of Jewish and non-Jewish people around the world. (more…)

First Medical Outreach of 2012: Many People in Woliso Helped

Our Woliso medical outreach in Ethiopia is going well. Results for the first three days of our clinic are as follows: Monday, February 27 – 1,300 patients treated, Tuesday, February 28 – 1,531 patients treated, and Wednesday, February 29 – 1,791 patients treated. Salvations as of Tuesday stand at 800 people. Praise Yeshua!

We still have 2 days left of this free medical clinic to poor Jewish People in Woliso. Please pray that more people get treated and that more accept Yeshua as Messiah. Please also pray for our staff and volunteers that God would give them tremendous skill, wisdom, and energy to complete the task He has for them.

Jewish Voice Prays Over Medical Supplies to Ethiopia

The Jewish Voice Global Outreach team packed medical supplies to ship to Ethiopia for our 2012 medical outreaches to Woliso (end of February), Addis Ababa (beginning of March), and Gondar, Ethiopia (end of September).

Jewish Voice staff then prayed over the medical supplies and prayed for several  Global Outreach team members before they left for Mexico City to prepare for our festival outreach there in the summer.

Ministering to Africa’s Lost Tribes

Jewish Voice CEO Jonathan Bernis explains the adventure in discovering and ministering to a new Jewish community called the Gefat people of Woliso, Ethiopia, linked to the Lost Tribes of Israel, during a Jewish Voice medical mission trip earlier this year.

From this mission, JVMI was able to plant a Bible school through the Messianic Jewish Bible Institute (MJBI) with some 170 students. More outreaches in the future look likely for Jewish Voice to minister to the Yiber tribe of Somaliland and the Lemba of Zimbabwe. It’s a true “Indiana Jones” adventure. http://www.jewishvoice.org
